Free Stamps & Guest Bokeh fun!

You only have until June 30th to join in the fun!  For just $99, you get your choice of $125 worth of Stampin'Up! products, plus two more stamp sets of your choice!  It's the best time to get those expensive sets for free.  No further obligation, but plenty of great perks, and we know it's all about those perks!  See me today for more information or click here to get started.

We had a recent challenge with my team to make a swap card using a technique new to them.  This just goes to show that great minds think alike.  One of the newest techniques out there is the Bokeh technique.  It gives the illusion of a photograph where the lights in the background are out of focus. There are also several ways to achieve this look and they all did it a little differently.  Three members of my team tried out this technique for the first time and the results are beautiful.

The first card is from Janet Hathcoat.  Her fun color scheme included Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie on Watercolor Paper.  She used one of my favorite retired word sets, Yippee-Skippee.

The next card is from Laura Diamond and she used Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point on Watercolor Paper.  She also made this a graduation card using the Occasions Class of 2015 stamp and heat embossed it with Black EP.

The inside verse is from the Adventure Awaits stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  
This third card is from JoAnn Graham and she went a little different route using a color scheme of Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz on Whisper White card stock.  She used the Bravo stamp set.
